Ampleforth Arms

Rare Opportunity in Residential Oxford

This pub is subject to a proposed refurbishment, the details of which are being worked up. While we don't have any further details to share right now, we are welcoming applications.

The Ampleforth Arms is ideally positioned at the very heart of Risinghurst, Oxford. Surrounding the pub, the different groups of residents are made up of affluent families and young professionals, which provides an excellent opportunity for an experienced publican or entrepreneur to create a lucrative business.

This pub is currently a drinks led site with no food on offer and so would benefit from a tasty, classic food menu, whilst still attracting locals with great drinks and an even better atmosphere.

Externally, the pub has an attractive red-brick appearance which is complemented by a modern, fresh, white entrance. The pub is well lit with clear contemporary signage, making it easily visible from the road. An enviable courtyard can be found to the rear for sunny, summer day refreshments. There is parking to the front and on-street parking also.

The Estimated Licensee Fixtures & Fittings (F&F) Value assumes that the pub will be let on a Rolling Tenancy or Business Start-Up Agreement, where we own the majority of the F&F. The F&F Value for Full Repairing & Insuring Leases will be significantly more.

The calculation of the Estimated Minimum Ingoing Costs assumes a minimum deposit of 1 month's rent or £3,000 (whichever is greater) and that fixtures and fittings (F&F) are rented. The subsequent deposit build up and F&F rental costs are not included in the rent model or ongoing costs below.
